Very Well written !!!! This was also famously portrayed in the courtroom scene from the Original film "Inherit the Wind".... by Spencer Tracy as Clarance Darrow and one of this country's original "tea party" William Jennings Bryant portrayed by Frederich March..... which asked that eternal question... "that 1st day..was it say 24 hours?? 36 hours?? Eastern standard or Moutain standard.. but wait the sun was not created yet!!! so it could have been a 1,000... 10,000 or 100 million!!!"
Are you refering to the Nancy Regan who consulted with a Astrologer daily to set her Husbands schedule and help him make decisions??
Curious how so many do not know their History... while Washington, Franklin, Jefferson and Adams all believed in a higher power you will not find a single reference to Christ.. in fact Jefferson went so far as to remove the word or reference to Christ from his personal Bible ( on display at Monticello)... And if you really want to get scandelous... even Lincoln ever mentioned Christ either..... The founding fathers were acutely aware of the dangers of Christianity and religion having control of government... remember that many of the origianl colonies barred those (catholics, Jews and various sects of Protestant's) who did believe what they did from their colonies,,, thus how Roger William came to found Rhode Island as a place of true religious freedom.
If you read about the widespread persecutions of those of other faiths in the colonies in the years leading to the revolution you will find it much like the Taliban of today.
What is going on today is not government forcing its beliefs on the populace but vocal minority religions trying to force their beliefs on the populace... we are "all created equal" please do not pretend to force your beliefs on me under the guise of Gods or Christ's will..... how many millions have died over the years trying to impose their God on others.........
